I am tring to find information on this mens long coat. Label reads
" three four one five " and has asian letters aound it. There seems to be white letter stamping hidden in some areas. Beautiful buttons and a very wooly collar. The coat is very heavy and has an inner brown fleece liner that cannot be removed, it is hand sewn in place. The color is the typical green miliary.. my pics do not really show this. Anybody ?
Thanks
Finy

    The buttons have the insignia of the Chinese People's Liberation Army - The army of communist China.

    As it has English writing...possibly South Korean Army ?

    If it is indeed Asian, I would say it's based on the M1938 Mackinaw jeep coat.

    I don't doubt that it's Asian, what I should have said if it's a Chinese copy of the American design.

    The white numbers are not Asian but English . Does this mean it is a replica ? Thank you for posting the link to follow! You all are wonderful !
